The Coffs Harbour Regional Museum and Gallery is presenting a Creative Recovery Project in collaboration with primary schools in the Orara Valley. Communities there faced evacuation, school closures, thick smoke and constant fire threat during the Black Summer bushfires.
The project includes a series of creative activities for communities to reflect, rebuild and recover. Over 150 students from Coramba Public, Ulong Primary and Nana Glen Public Schools worked with artists and arts workers to produce artworks that reflect their impressions of living through a bushfire and what was important for them.
